I love a savoury muffin. They’re such a great way to get some added veggies and herbs into your diet and are perfect for early mornings on the go! I often grab one on my way out the door with the intention of eating it once I get to my desk – more often than…

Chocolate peanut butter NICE cream

You scream, I scream, we all scream for NICE cream! I’ve seen a lot of posts about NanaBar nice cream recently and they all look delicious! So delicious in fact that I had no choice but to make my own as I couldn’t get myself to a NanaBar soon enough. This recipe is super simple…

Spinach and courgette breakfast loaf

Breakfast is often eaten in a hurry as we rush out the door to work. People are always saying to me they find it hard to eat healthily at breakfast as they only have time for a slice of toast or a bowl of cereal, often wolfed down quickly and while doing other things. This…

Simple sautéed asparagus with a lemon and caper dressing

Asparagus is best served simply. It has such a gorgeous flavour that it needs very little to bring it to life. A glug of oil, a good grind of salt and pepper, a squeeze of lemon and some parmesan shavings are more than enough to impress with this veggie. I’ve suggested a lemon and caper…

Carrot cupcakes with orange mascarpone icing

As many of you know, I gave up chocolate for lent. It’s going well so far and I haven’t touched the stuff for 3 weeks which is pretty good going for me, considering it’s one of my favourite ingredients on the planet! But it has left me at a loss of what to eat for…

It’s also far more environmentally friendly as it supports local farming and produce and minimises transportation. And if that…

Spring onion focaccia

This is one for the weekend. Proving bread does take a while, but this recipe isn’t too complicated and can be whipped up much faster than you think. Make the dough on a Sunday morning, have a coffee or meet a friend as it proves and it will be ready by lunchtime. Perfect for dipping…
